I have a dream! I have a vision of seeing the EvalGender + in 2015 becoming a vibrant global forum and an advocate network in arena of gender responsive and social equity development evaluation. It will be a forum where new ideas on the issues conceive, born and grow and propagate.

In its journey to make development evaluation endeavors inclusive of gender and social equity, EvalGender shall collaborate and work with all actors ( government, academia, private sector, global ( UN agencies) , continental (like African Union and European Union), and regional organizations, professional and evaluation associations and communities operating at various levels, NGOs, etc.). The EvalGender + shall in place a more decentralized and participatory management system. It shall operate ranging from country, continental to global level.

Among other activities, the next will be few activities of the EvalGender +
• Organizing global dialogue forums on Gender inclusive and social equity evaluation and related issues
• Advocating countries to have evaluation policies and legal framework system inclusive of gender and social equity
• Providing in collaboration with other actors like evaluation associations and organizations capacity development activities to government officials in different parts of the world
• Advocating universities in developing counties to design undergraduate and postgraduate programs on evaluation in general
• Publishing periodical bulletins and journals written in multiple languages so as to facilitate the exchange of ideas and best practices across the globe

Once again, I have a dream! In 2025, EvalGender + will be a global network for gender inclusive and social equity evaluation.

Message from Dr Lyn Alderman, President, The Australasian Evaluation Society on the launch of Evalgender+ at Evaluation Conclave in Kathmandu on 25th Nov 2015. She also elaborates on gender culture and equity in context of Australia. Thanks Dr Lyn!

Dear Rituu My answers to your questions 1. What would EvalGender+ be at its best? What is your dream for EvalGender+? Where do you see it in the year 2025? Gender should be mainstreamed with all the development plans and processes then it would automatically be a part of evaluation. There are queries that when gender is not in planning how it can be a part of evaluation. It is possible both ways. Evalgender can create awareness about importance of gender lence in planning and gradually it will be apart of planning and implementation process. My dream is to see a society with equity and equality. 2. Who would be a part of this partnership? Everybody should be sensitized about 'gender' and be encouraged to be part of it. The Government should play a proactive role as it plays an important role in development. There is also a need for change in steriotypic attitudes and mindstes and local level 3. What activities will it be undertaking by 2025? Sensitization, awareness, capacity building so that an enabling environm,ent could be created 4. How would the Evalgender+ be governed? Through participation of all the stakeholders.

Dream from Florence Etta forwarded by Awuor Ponge 

1  At its best EvalGender+ will be a global movement recognised across the world as the collection of passion and commitment to push for true, tranformative and sustainable gender equality through M & E at all levels of development action. 
 
2 All development actors committed to gender equality
 
3 Global convention & celebrations, global awards & recognitions, publications  in all major languages of primers, comics,art, - seriuos books & journals
 
4 A loose global network of groups, associations, organisations and or institutions that identify with and sign or adopt/adapt an EvalGender Code of practice with a balanced elected Council of representatives of groups as determined through a collaborative process of identification e.g. geograhical or sectoral, or other factor. 
This council should also include reps from all the EvalP  component groups, the private sector as well as Non UN actors.

My dream for EvalGender+...

  1. What would EvalGender+ be at its best? What is your dream for EvalGender+? Where do you see it in the year 2025?

I envision EvalGender+ as the movement to promote equity-focused and gender responsive evaluation worldwide. EvalGender+ would contribute to more sustainable, equitable and gender responsive policies advocating for effective gender responsive evaluation.  Also, EvalGender+ would act as the platform to help advocate for equity-focused and gender responsive evaluation of the SDGs. In 2025, I would see national governments, regional and international organizations using equity-focused and gender-responsive approaches in their evaluation frameworks. This would entail all new policies to have incorporated an equity-focused and gender responsive approach.  This will create more equitable and sustainable societies.

  1. Who would be a part of this partnership?

Beyond current member organizations which include VOPEs, NGOs, UN organizations, multilateral organizations, EvalGender+ could also partner with women’s movements; national evaluation systems; bilateral donors and private foundations

  1. What activities will it be undertaking by 2025?

Most importantly, EvalGender+ will provide guidelines to develop equity-focused and gender responsive frameworks to be adapted and used at national, regional and international level to evaluate SDGs with such an approach. EvalGender+ will also promote and advocate for equity-focused and gender responsive evaluation among evaluation and policy groups and networks.

From our perspective - a private company offering an M&E software (see www.prome-web.com ) - we would love to partner with EvalGender+ to help us offer features reinforcing best practices in gender equality evaluation. Ideas and suggestions from the M&E community is invaluable and can help us provide better tools, accessible to small and big scale projets.
